Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the attorney is disbarred, then he cannot practice law and represent anyone, he has to be actively licensed. Thus, you can file a complaint against the attorney with the bar and have him removed from the case by the judge by filing a motion in court showing that he is not licensed to practice law because he was disbarred. If he is currently licensed, but had previously been disbarred then this does not apply.
If he is not cooperating with you in good faith in scheduling the deposition and you have medical reasons you can document as to why you are not available on the dates he wants, then you would oppose his motion to compel and present your evidence supporting your claims and ask the court to mandate he follow the federal discovery rules and try to work out a convenient time for the deposition in good faith before pursuing a motion to compel. You can argue that he has not tried in good faith to schedule any convenient time for you and as such the motion to compel is not appropriate.
You have to answer the motion to compel at least 5 days before it is set for a hearing. With this party refusing to mediate or negotiate in good faith as the court has required, you need to consider getting your own attorney to take this up and get an advantage on the playing field if the court has already expressed displeasure with the attorney, it could be much more helpful to you and less costly to you in the long term, maybe not short term as you are looking at your finances but certainly over time because the attorney can look at your case and can come up with some other possible legal positions to put an end to your opponent's claims saving you time and extra money continuing on with this matter.
